For decades there have been big disconnects between the different roles of the IT shop. We struggle with inherent barriers between development projects and the stable infrastructure needed to deploy and run products. Applications get completed and tested in insulated internal environments without adequate collaboration between production IT staff and infrastructure administrators. Unforeseen challenges plague the production environment, wreaking havoc with deadlines, deliverables, and ultimately the business mission. Security is often a wet blanket at best, and an afterthought at worst. In the meantime, huge backlogs of work and technical debt pile up, chronically eroding the efficiency and agility of the business' IT capability. This three-day DevOps Implementation training class is loaded with practical real-world tools and techniques. From the nation's largest agile development trainers comes a comprehensive program to get you started on the road to DevOps success. You will leave this course fully literate in the whole array of available DevOps tools and lessons, ready to select what's right for you and chart a path to holistic long-term IT success in your own organization.

Great learning center. My first online class experience -- went better than I anticipated.

The training provided by ExitCertified is excellent in terms of instructor and contents. It's really helpful.

Facilities were very clean, coffee was nice to have, snack selection was refreshing

Content is great and useful lab exercise which can be related to tasks performed at work.

The course material and instructor were very good. easy to follow, lab was setup nicely and was able to complete most of the lab material.
The Koretex App is absolute garbage and very cumbersome to use on a tablet/ipad. A PDF file would be 100 times better than that atrocious app.
As a recommendation this class should be 5 days instead of 4 as some chapters had to be rushed.
